With a Groupon in hand, you can book an appointment with one of the master hair shamans at Gasoline Alley to snip and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes.

Since then, she has welcomed visitors into a world of haircare treatments, soothing massages, and stylish manicures.
